Every E.L.V. DENIM patchwork flares are handcrafted from salvaged strips of corduroy off-cuts. The corduroy is patchworked together by hand to create an asymmetric pattern.
The flares are hand-cut, sewn, and finished, creating unique colourways each time. High-waisted, with front pockets and featuring our branded E.L.V. DENIM eco-friendly hardware, each flare is one of a kind.

We make beautifully crafted, high-quality, iconic staples that are as sustainable as they're stylish. Our approach to sustainable denim champions effort, luxury, skill and longevity.
Our innovative use of fabric and unique designs creates tailored jeans that flatter and fit all ages. They not only make you look good, but they make you feel good, as each item is handcrafted from 100% upcycled pre-loved garments and materials.
Our studio in East London is the heart of our business, but we also work with other local ateliers that share our ethos. We’re committed to supporting our community of creatives, including tailors, machinists, artists and designers.
Attention to detail is paramount – every piece is carefully curated, washed, paired, and cut by hand. Our hardware is sustainable, and our labels are printed on 100% recycled seeded paper. We work to a zero-waste ethos – turning our fabric scraps into paper and the hardware from the original jean into objets d’art.
With considered upcycling and fabric-first curated sourcing, we can meet the global demand for design-led luxury fashion and be kinder to the environment.
We champion slow fashion, craftsmanship and skill and are determined to do better for the planet. Every stage of our production process is environmentally and socially conscious, from sourcing, local production, upcycling and using sustainable packaging.
We exist to correct the fashion industry’s wrongs and revalue the material that cost the environment so much in the first place. We reimagine pre-loved garments into iconic, unique pieces.
In a world of overconsumption, E.L.V. DENIM challenges the status quo, providing solutions for a better way forward.
We’re passionate about creating clothes to love and treasure forever, so we offer made-to-order, made-to-measure or bespoke design services.
Our takeback initiative and rotation schemes enable you to trade in your old denim or E.L.V. DENIM jeans, while our repair and alteration service means your E.L.V. DENIM piece can evolve with you and your body forever.
And because we make to demand, there’s no overproduction, so no pointless waste.
Turn inside out to protect the textured side (nap) from matting down and attracting lint, which is very hard to remove once it’s attached itself.
Don’t wash your corduroy with fleece, felt or terry materials (sweaters, jackets and towels).
Choose a gentle cycle. Wash dark corduroy in cold water and light corduroy in warm (between 20 - 30°C) water.
Keep colours separate.
Hang to dry naturally in the shade or indoors.
